  1. Suggestions for investment in US stock/funds market

      If you believe the dollar will depreciate in relation to the euro, why not change all your $ into euro and inveset in US Shares or Index funds with Euro?
  2. Suggestions for investment in US stock/funds market

    Finanzfluss - Finanzen in die eigenen Hände nehmen   is a great website with all the investing information any German resident taxpayer could require.
  3. Stop the XXL Bundestag! Sign the petition

    I heard the CSU is the cause of this as they win so many "Direkt Mandate". This means that other parties are given "Ausgleichsmandate" to stop the CSU being overproportionally represented.
  4. Hotel near HBF Munich - safe area?

      Well if you arrive by train it is very convenient. Actually there are quite a few hotels in that area.
  5. Bundestagswahl 26th of September 2021

      That is a side effect of the list system. Direct mandates only would correct this.
  6. Bundestagswahl 26th of September 2021

      I would prefer direct mandates only and no lists.
  7. Bundestagswahl 26th of September 2021

    I think that the 3% rule should be abolished. It would help smaller parties become established.
  8. Living choice: Baden baden vs Mannheim

    Mannheim is great if you like Turkish food. Many great Turkish restaurants there.
  9. Bundestagswahl 26th of September 2021

    I would vote for Die Linke as they favor a higher minimum wage, more taxes for the rich, less taxes for the middle class and german yout of NATO. Also nationalistion of large landlords like Deutsche Wohnen.
  10. Hotel near HBF Munich - safe area?

    well I just got back from my long weekend in Munich. I survived staying in a hotel near the HBF ( Paul-Heyse-Straße ). That street itself is quite but the neighbourhood in general is a dump, especially Goethe Str. which is full of beggars. Next time I will try Schwabing.
  11. Hotel near HBF Munich - safe area?

    I don´t mind people drinking or gambing as long as they don´t harass or try to mug me. I will be in Munich for 4 days only and just want to stay safe in the area around HBF when walking back to my hotel in the evening. I had previously stayed in a hotel in this area about 15 years ago but have heard some reports that the area has become less safe since those days.
  12. I will be visiting Munich at the end of this month and have booked a hotel near the Hauptbahnhof Munich. Is this a safe area? Is it ok to walk here from the city centre late in the evening? (I am a 40 year old male)
